Wait for the 4870

Should be avilable soon. If not, 9800gtxs are good if only they went down in price even more.

both good cards

What matters isn't so much how one card stands up to another, but how they handle your software.

I've read internet claims that people have the HD4870 already in-hand, but I remember reading that supplies will be limited for at least the next couple weeks. I've only seen the HD4850 myself (at local Best Buy for $199).
